Marvel has announced a new Star Wars mini-series!
Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel will be written by Jason Aaron and Kieron Gillen, and the series will bring their two Star Wars series together in an “epic crossover” event.
“We’re so excited for The Screaming Citadel because it brings a whole new tone and feel to the Star Wars characters we know and love,” said series Editor Jordan D. White in a statement to the press. “The titular citadel is our version of the dark and mysterious castle on the hill, and our cast of rebels and rogues are the adventurers who face a stormy night exploring the darkness. Kieron and Jason write these characters so vibrantly, it’s awesome to see them thrown into a new situation like this…get ready for a good one!”
Rebel pilot and rogue archaeologist wander side-by-side into the darkest corners of the galaxy as Luke Skywalker reluctantly teams with Doctor Aphra! The good Doctor has an offer for this flyboy farm boy – help her, and she’ll provide him with information crucial on his quest to become a Jedi. With an offer he can’t refuse on the table, this unlikely duo finds themselves deep into the heart of the infamous Screaming Citadel! Can Luke find what he’s looking for? Can Aphra be trusted? Or will the Citadel’s Queen and the dark forces lurking within make their journey a one-way trip?!
Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel is scheduled to arrive in May, with the other installments playing out in Stars Wars and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra.
